Workshop Overview

This one-day, advanced communication workshop offers an opportunity for experienced CHAS staff to work in a small peer group on scenarios relating to complex shared decision-making and communication about ACP and CYPADM when a baby, child or young person  is deteriorating.

It supports the HIS programme: Anticipatory Care Planning in Scotland and the Building on the Best programme in Scotland

  • Aware of the antenatal, neonatal and children’s ACPs
  • Discuss treatment options and outcomes within a person-centred model of shared decision-making and Realistic Medicine.
  • Respond to anger, distress, collusion and other complex emotions.
